New Jersey Stainless

Mike in New Jersey sent over a couple of photos of his Stainless 931 build. The frame was originally rescued with a gloss black paint job, after some over-eager work in the sandblast cabinet. "Rode it today.. it's as i imagined it, with the wheelset and crankset .. it rides just as i wanted it. Got it built to a hair over 15lbs with full SRAM Ergo Red with Rotor 155mm and US edition Q Rings crankset. I slapped on an 80mm 17 degrees stem, Ritchey WCS.. which i can get away with for being small :-) Thomson Carbon handlebar and Thomson Masterpiece seat post, with Fizik Snake Kurve Saddle. Fulcrum 1's complete the bike with Tufo tubular clinchers. 15 lbs (6.8kg) includes the pedals, water cages and the spare tubular.. as you see the bike on the pic attached. Thanks again!" This is a bike for life for Mike - I'm sure it will give him many, many years of pleasure. Thank you for the photos. See more of the GOSFORTH 931 here.
